Succession Politics
A doctoral dissertation at the University of California at Riverside studying the sexual politics of the superintendency found a significant association between a superintendent’s gender before turnover and the successor’s sex.

Researcher Jennifer Stuckey determined that, if school districts had women superintendents previously, it was easier for women successors to enter these districts.

In examining the percentages of newly hired women superintendents in California over an eight-year period, Stuckey found women won a small number of district superintendencies that had been filled by men. Women were more likely to be in large suburbs and large cities with higher academic ratings than male superintendents.
